This fine small cabinet specimen is from the Franklin Mining District in Sussex County, New Jersey, USA, what is know as the fluorescent mineral capital of the world! Creamy-tan rounded crystals of Willemite are also distributed through and across the specimen. Under LWUV the Calcite fluoresces pale creamy-pink and in SWUV the Willemite bright emerald green. A great Franklin specimen.
